    Hi All-

    @Bunheads – Nice opening episode, great to see EB in top form, wonder if the plot sledgehammer in the last 30 seconds limits[i.e. makes more predictable] the possibilities of where they can go next. Was surprised to see ASP pull out the “black widow” syndrome so early and so final.

    @Isha – AB take 3 in MM. Excellent finale overall and for her in particular. Plotline explained a lot about her character in a minimalist sort of way. Terrific writing. Did not see that one coming!! Almost felt sorry for Pete as he finally seemed human.

    @mcityrk totally agree, I didn’t see it coming and was really glad she had an arc. Pete’s self awareness when he was talking to her in the hospital was really affecting, I felt sorry for him too.

    On a different point, I am really excited for Alexis- in a way I think this casting signals a real breakthrough for her- Mad Men has such huge reach and everyone knows Matthew Weiner has complete integrity in his casting and vision, so she now must be seen as a serious, credible actress. I think great things may be coming for her.

    I really wish this website could be revived- Arieanna if you do check back in please reconsider, I think traffic to this site will soon be turning a huge corner and will be a real payoff to all your years of work. No questions asked if you do! Pretty please??

    great youtube video find @regis! just goes to show how another well-known actor made one of his first appearances on our beloved show.

    I’ve read that Alexis has been suggested for the lead role in the 50 shades movies. That would certainly sky-rocket her career, @Isha! It would be so nice if more people would recognize how beautiful and talented she is.

    Agreed, Regis! I’m really liking Bunheads. I especially love the scenes between Sutton Foster and Kelly Bishop. They never disappoint!

    So far Bunheads has been a breath of fresh air for all the Gilmoreholics waiting for a touch of the old ASP magic. The five best things about BH:

    5] You never know when/where a GG alumnus will show up. So far we have had Mitchem as the local hippie-dippy bartender, Pizza man Pete [aka. Kirk’s movie girlfriend’s father] as one of Fanny’s local school suppliers, cranky golf-cart man [aka. Trix’s funeral reverend] as a movie theater goer, Gypsy as a book club member, and the best hoot of all Zak as a one-eyed plumber and possible love interest for Truly.

    4] Close your eyes at breaks and scene transitions and the music takes you back to days of Gilmore past. And at least one good show/dance scene per episode really sets it apart from most of the other ABCF shows.

    3] The ballet quartet is somewhat reminiscent of the SH/Chilton 4 albeit with no obvious replacement for Rory. [This is a deficiency that needs correcting for the long term survival of the show, i.e. where is the third strong generational leg to put it over the top.] So far we have Sasha as a snarky admixture of Louise and Paris, Melody as a less mature but equally funny and clueless version of Madeline, Julie as a very pale version [so far] of Lane, and Bo who has some really tough shoes to fill. Suspect in the end that Sasha and Bo will combine to look like a revolving Rory to Michele’s yet to be fully fleshed out Lorelai.

    2] Truly is the new Kirk.

    1] Watching the two old pros skillfully play off each other as Fanny and Michele is so so reminiscent of the Emily/Lorelai dynamic of GG. The big difference between the two shows is that with GG we always felt we knew where/when it had to end, but with BH there is a more opened-ended feel as to where it can go.

    So far so very good!!

    @regis-

    Actually think there were three GG shout-outs this episode: 1] your previously mentioned nod to P-Digger as Michele’s first post-Hubble love interest, 2] the moutain that Michele had to climb over in the theater looked like the actress who played Sookie’s midwife Bruce, 3] the final screaming match kick-out resolution between Fanny and Sasha to close the episode was right out of the Book of the “Mess called Jess” between Scott and Milo near the end of season three.

    My bets on either Taylor, Miss Patty, or Headmaster Charlston as the next cameo. With only 2 episodes left to close out this short season curious how well it has been received by ABCF primary demographic??

    This week’s triple nod to GG: 1] Michele in excruciatingly slow line for coffee to eventually be served by …da.da.da…Kirky [Sean Gunn] as an idiosyncratic barista. Not once, but three great set pieces. Brings new meaning to the phrase coffee….coffee….coffee. 2] and 3] Rose Abdoo and Jon Polito [Gypsy and Pizaman Pete] as town committee members doing the best imitation of a conservative progress-restricting Taylor Dosee seen outside of SH in say oh around 5.5 years.

    Am still rolling on the floor lauging…..barely able to reach my computer!! Wonder who will show up next week to help close out the season??

    Great fun– Hope ABCF has the brains to keep this show on their menu. An awful lot of their shows are getting really long in the tooth.

    i finally got around to ep 1-9 – almost fell over when i saw sean gunn – all smart on amy’s part – going with proven actors, and throwing gilmore fans a few bones.

    i also noted a few items of interest from previous eps:

    1. eps 1-4 and 1-8 were directed by dan palladino

    2. ep 1-7 was directed by jackson douglas (aka jackson belleville)

    all in the family :)

    Hi All-

    I notice in my TV listings for this week that ABCF will be rerunning all 9 previous episodes of BH starting at 10AM [cst] on Monday. Then at 7pm there is the usual running of SL followed by the final season episode of BH as well as an encore presentation. If you have missed it or come late to the party this summer, here is a great chance to catch up. Have fun–

    Wrap-up from BH season one:

    Delighted that a reprise of all the episodes on Monday held up as well for me as the original showing. Lots of fun from familiar faces [Mitchem, Tom, Gypsy, Pete, Zak, Curt, and golf-cart man] though no new GG alumni sightings in the final episode. However, we did get to revisit “Marco Polo” and find new meaning in the phrase “burning down the house” [BH uses inadvertent mace on the Nutcracker cast as opposed to either the cat induced Independence Inn fire or the David Byrne and the Talking Heads shout-out scenes in GG]. Also particularly liked the dream sequence with Hubble to close that relationship as well as the girl’s support for Michelle in the final scene after her unfortunate accident. Think their quote might be directly from “Dead Poets Society” as well as being a thematic nod to other films like “Good-by Mr. Chips” and “Mister Roberts”.

    And the final kicker, after a slow build-up in the personal lives for the ballet quartet we get more fleshed-out wrap-ups for the girls over the last few episodes leading into the hiatus, [possibly a Jess Jr. for Sasha, a Doyle for Boo, a Marty-in-training for Jenny, and a no-way-Jose not now not ever Tristan for Melody].

    Also will also be interesting to see how Fanny/Michelle escape their latest conundrum [although clearly they will!]. While BH is certainly derivative of GG in both tone and format, the POV is sufficiently different that it comes off as fun, fresh, and not a rip. Looking forward to the next installments.

    Since this was the 2012 catchall post for all comments on Mad Men via Alexis appearance I must say glad I did not watch this show on a weekly basis for years at a time, wasting a single weekend bienge viewing was suffuccient. Pete and Trudy living happily ever after in Wichata was less believable than Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, Don in abstentia from most of the other characters for the last few episodes was laughable, and Roger skating through life till he will finally crash actually seemed fitting. That Peggy and Joan landed nicely on their feet seemed like the only plotlines worth watching since they were the shows only true achievers.

    How did we miss a proper Mad Men discussion? Once I’m done with Gotham (Milo’s story arc is the best thing in it) and Veronica Mars (just finished season one OMG) I’m fairly sure I might get round to it :O)

    Think we missed a fuller AB on Mad Men discussion because her story arc occured about two months before you picked up the writing for this site with your terrific BH synopsis–
